The small embroideries from yesterday were used to make a few pairs of reversible baby slippers. I haven't found any old linen for the past couple of years. This is partly due to not second-hand shopping as much, and living in Wellington, where the opshops are very well patronised and linen/fabric is a very rare find.
It was about time I used my own stitching to make baby shoes, don't you think? And there's always a lot of inspiration to be found.
You know how I published my baby shoe design in my book? I am curious, has anyone used the pattern to make a pair?
I've made a Sweet and Simple Handmade flickr group, so please join in if you're making any of the designs. I'd love to see them! I'm hoping the group could also be used to discuss ideas, suggestions, questions, etc.
